The grid veteran also wants to be a major player in 2025.

Fernando Alonso enters the fray of possible, very important team changes that will characterize Formula 1 next season. And with Lewis Hamilton already sure to move to Ferrari, the two-time world champion currently at Aston Martin is also a candidate for an absolute top-level transfer. Perhaps to that very Mercedes that will part ways with its historic rival.

"I am in a good position to negotiate ahead of 2025, I think,” Alonso said on the sidelines of the pre-season tests that Formula 1 held in Bahrain. “I still want to start the championship without thinking too much about it, at least for the first two races. First I want to check my performance in this season, the longest in history. I intend to make some changes to go to the maximum and complete the championship still with a lot of energy".

That Toto Wolff in recent weeks has been in contact with Fernando Alonso is not è a mystery, but no decision è has yet been made in Mercedes for the post-Hamilton era. Numerous have been però meanwhile the advice to the Anglo-German team to rely precisely on him. "If I were in Mercedes, instead of Hamilton I would choose Alonso – said, for example, David Coulthard in a speech for the podcast 'Formula for Success' -. Fernando canè run at high levels, è still a fighter and in addition; he knows Mercedes engines thanks to his experience in Aston Martin".
